Ally Theatre Company's Rasheeda Speaking

  • Joe’s Movement Emporium 3309 Bunker Hill Road Mount Rainier United States (map)

BY JOEL DRAKE JOHNSON Directed by Ty Hallmark

Ally Theatre Company’s take on the incendiary play by Joel Drake Johnson takes another look at the ever-topical questions about the prevalence of ingrained racism in America.

This tense workplace thriller examines the realities of a so-called “post-racial” workplace where two co-workers—one black, the other white—are driven apart by the machinations of their boss. A chilling power struggle ensues that spins wildly out of control. This incisive and shocking dark comedy will keep you in its claustrophobic grip until the final moment.


Ally Theatre Company produces theatre designed to engage audiences through acknowledging and confronting systemic oppression in America. 

We aim to join the vital conversations -- sparked by generations of thinkers, writers, performers, and activists who paved the way before us -- conversations that continue each and every day -- by: 

-Placing underrepresented populations at the front and center of our narratives and our organization; 
-Forming alliances with individuals and organizations who share a similar mission;  
-Producing new theatrical works making their world, national, or local premieres; and
-Tackling existing theatrical works that forward the conversation. 

In doing so, we hope to play a small part in creating the space and opportunity needed to form new traditions and conversations, while steadily inching toward the eradication of systemic violence, prejudice, and racism in our society.
